Pawning vs Selling – which is the best option for me

Most Americans have found themselves short on cash at some point and have considered selling some prized possessions. There are differences between selling and pawning. When you sell something – it is final. You no longer own it. This can be emotionally difficult especially if the financial shortfall is temporary. However, the process is quick and easy and if you have found a reputable buyer who has enough expertise to understand the value of the item for sale. When you pawn an item you are actually receiving a short-term collateral loan that is regulated by state and federal laws. This means you will pay the same interest and fees regardless of where you pawn your items. If a short-term collateral loan is the right fit for you be sure to find a reputable pawn shop with the expertise to offer the best price for your possessions.

What is a GIA Grading Report, Why do I need one and How do I get one?

If you spend any time researching diamonds – whether you are considering buying, selling, or pawning diamonds – you will see either “GIA” or “The 4C’s” mentioned. The Gemological Institute of America, or GIA, created the 4C scale to establish the clarity and color standards in the diamond and gemstone industry. While there are other institutions that certify diamonds, GIA is called the “foremost authority on diamonds” for a reason. GIA will grade your diamond, based on the 4C’s, and then offer a certificate that contains all the characteristics of your stone. While a GIA certificate is not required to buy, sell, or pawn a diamond or colored stone, it serves as proof of a diamonds cut, clarity and color, and establishes a colored gemstones’ origins and treatments. GIA is extremely strict in its grading standards, and is known throughout the diamond industry as the most unbiased and accurate opinion when it comes to grading stones. The most convenient way to obtain a GIA Diamond Grading Report or a Diamond Dossier® is through a local fine jewelry retailer. Retail jewelers are uniquely qualified to obtain a GIA report and to explain its contents. Victoria Goldia, Inc truly encourages its clients to obtain a GIA grading report to achieve the highest possible value for their precious...
